Charlie Visits Our Deck

Our deck had its first squirrel-visitor of the season yesterday. I try not to encourage squirrels to come up to the deck because they have to either leap from a tree or from the roof to get up there, and I fear that one will miss the rail and get hurt. Maybe that's silly; they do acrobatics all the time. Anyway, I avoid using sunflower seed and other squirrel favorites on the deck feeders. Yesterday this fellow got hungry and decided to check out the less tasty seeds.

In the first picture, you may see a coating of ice on the branches. We had some sleet and hail earlier.
